The picture on the dedicatory page is a photograph of an oil copy by Norman Kraus of Hlacob de Roore Confessing the Faith," taken from Martyrs, Mirror. We do not claim to have accomplished all We set out to do, but we can rejoice if by this publication the cause of Christ may be extended in the Held of Christian education. -P. P. Contents l51 1 W 4 T 1 7 E , '- l F M W- , 1 7 Faculty 3 5 s From the President TO THE GRADUATING CLASSES OF 1945' Congratulations to you upon the attainment of goals you have been working to achieve. Eur graduation indicates that academic and Bible courses have been completed, but your graduation from the school of life is postponed until our Lord calls you up higher. You leave this institu- tion to enter the vicissitudes of life in a world that is terribly distracted, disorganized, and desparing. Until our Lord returns, keep your hope anchored to Him, maintain- ing a continual consciousness of the Spirit's indwelling presence, drink deeply and continually from the Phord of Life land you can continue in the service of God -with conjidence. I. L. STAUFFER E101 , gf From the Dean DEAR GRADUATES: My valedictory to you is Abound up with the overpowering incentive of Paul, "Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect, but I follow after." Paul never regarded himself as having arrived, as having fully achieved, as having attained the goal. His entire life was a grand episode of a "reaching forth" and pressing onward. Your diploma is not a symbol of having arrived, only that of com- m-encement. Never sag to such smug complacency. Alttain, continue attaining. Onward, ever onward to the prize of God's high calling.

Officieux Ui' cannot say it's only for the work you'fve done That gratitude is ours, Nor do -we speak because it's nice and proper That we hand to you these flogwers. Rather, it's the love you showed in efvery act .tis day by day your tasks you wrought. Your worth to us can nefuer measured be Nor can we thank you as 'we ought. -MARY KURTZ H71 2 College Class Advise1"s Message Your lives are crowned with spiritual blessings in Christ Iesus. The message of the cross has led you into a voluntary participation in the death of self. You have appropriated resurrection grace in witness of a risen Lord. Your experience in worship has been vital- ized through a conscious identification with Christ in the heavenlies. Your lives are en- riched With this manifold grace for the praise of His glory. You have found the forgiveness of your sins and have received 'the adoption of chil- dren in the family of God. Your acceptance with the Father has made you personally responsible to reflect His character in holy living and in loving service. Your behaviour has taken on the nature of testimony to the revealed will and purposes of God. Your entire life with all of your training is now :being dedicated to the praise of His glory. The Holy Spirit is the pledge of your eternal inheritance. Having become children of God by divine promise you are called to a divine service. God has made known to you the design of His will and of His merciful purposes in the earth to declare the praise of His glory. Your training and experience at Eastern Mennonite School have given you a deeper appreciation for the Word of God. We commend you to this Word olf His grace as a source from which you can draw perpetually the soul inspiration you need for victorious living. His Truth will guide you safely through the portals of heaven's love and fellow- ship. There you will live in constant praise of His glory. -Iohn R. Mumaw. High School Class Adviseifs Message "They that wait upon the Lord .... " Don't be impatient. Count on spending time in the waiting rooms of the Lord,-the anterooms and vestibules that lead to the chambers of your Heaven-directed dreams. Don't begrudge the days and years to be spent in humble service, in the lower brackets of wage and honor. If the Lord plans for you, accept with gladness and zest the task for today, assured that it is part of the divine program for you. Exalt your work and give it your energies,-it will make room for you. There is room above for the patient, cheerful, vision-inspired toiler. And each promotion will but bring you to another waiting room. Bide your time. "Wait upon the Lordf, Dream, but don't let your enthusiasms for tomorrow interfere with your thrilling to the song of life today. Live your best today and find a joy in it, then, by just that much at least, tomorrow will be richer and happier. You are promised the upward direction, eagles' Wings and tireless flight,-if you wait. Better things lie ahead, but don't let them cheat you out of the good things today. Dreams will give you urge, but don't project them too far. Let dreams come true today. Today should be the desire of yesterday. Revel in it and wait,--"wait upon the Lord." -M. T.

E.M.S. was among those colleges that exchanged the usual summer quiet for a period of activity. The work of the faculty members who sacrificed for us was much appreciated. They were sympathetic with us of aching heads and fevered brows. All of our activities were free of conventionalities-or nearly all. With only thirteen men in the dormitory it was natural that this should be so. Many friendly chats were enjoyed--and even a few pranks! Classroom and informal discussions strengthened our ideals and convictions. There was music-Lawrence Brunk directed a male chorus. This was a summer spent profitably because it was for His glory. l29l rcvcvmnff EGM-I! 511113 will Nui 3111152 qw ORCANIIAI ION PRLSIDI NIT DAXILI BAIR V11 L PRLSIDI N1 DAMN RINI IORD S1 LRETARX RUTH BRUNR FRLASURILR LVPI x NI L XNIDIS BUSINII ss NIAXAC 1 R HAROI n HOUSNIAN CI xss Amis: R M 'I BRAC RBH1 XIOTTO Thy W111 Not Mun I30 Gllrg Hill ul mir?

Looking at the organization from their viewpoint, the faculty finds much for which to thank God and take courage. Here are young men and women carrying responsibilities, getting under burdens, doing personal Work, praying much, spending themselves "that the name of our Lord Iesus Christ may be magnified." Offhcers and committee members are doing much more than getting training in direct- ing activities and in working up programs. Their living devotion to the Christ of Calvary which includes the burden that such devotion be the experience of every student onthe campus is the thing that makes the Association a vital, throbbing organization.

As such may be expressed the purpose of Mixed Chorus, ever desiring to glorify in song the Master of infinite harmony.

E High School l ADELPHIAN To high school freshmen and sophomores the Adelphian Society serves as an in- troduction to the World of literary society activity. If these programs do not reveal the 't f thou ht and expression to be found in other societles, they do carry an air maturi y o t g of seriousness. Participants lay the foundation for future success by careful preparation for their programs. Being an Adelphian is prohtably interesting. l63l Literaries s , ARMERIAN Every Friday evening that the loyal Armerians assemble to enjoy an entertaining and profitable program, they are challenged as they gaze upon the Societyis banner which reads, "NOT ONLY FOR SCHOOL, BUT FOR LIFE WE LEARN." While striving to live up to their motto, the Armerians have discovered, Within their society, talents for varied activities. lt is sincerely hoped that in developing these talents for speaking, singing, and writing, each Armerian has become better prepared for a rich and useful life. PHILOMATHEAN On Friday nights, every disturbing thought of classes departs as each student enters his literary hall for an entertaining dessert after a heavy main course of study. Here hidden talents. are discovered and developed along 'the lines of singing, speaking, and debating. Dashing personality, originality, and -character are displayed in the many splendid programs given. While preparing for these programs, We are being trained to better fulfill the purpose which our Lord has planned for us. The annual Philomathean- Armerian Contest, which is held in the spring, proves an exciting climax to the year's activities. Ever before us We keep our motto, "Training for Service." E591 e gg H QE ' Nature ASTRAL SOCIETY Our group of sixty-seven has been active in learning the names of stars and con- stellations. In order to organize this study for more effective results, clusters, groups of five or six students have been formed. They Work together in learning stars. At our monthly meetings Brother Brackbill gave us lectures on the universe and later introduced the almanac with its various symbols. Through a broader acquaintance with God's handiwork we can better appreciate and adore the Creator. "Ad Astraln Soc1et1es AVIAN Avian education includes hikes and meetings devoted to discussions of birds and bird lovers. Comments of our efhcient sponsor, slides, and appropriate music combine to increase the value of these meetings and of the Avian Society. NATURE Nature Society exists for nature-loving Iuniors. Hikes, mountain climbs, illustrated lectures, and monthly programs help us to enjoy and appreciate the world in which we live. Are you on speaking terms with the wild flowers, insects, birds, and mammals? Do you enjoy the lofty mountains, the Winding streams, and the rocky hillsides? The members of Nature Society do, and praise God for all of it. , l71l X Aff seri e THE DEOVENARIAN FELLOWSHIP Among new activities introduced at school this year was the Deovenarian Bible Fellowship composed of First and second year college students, and sponsored by Bro. I. L. Stauffer. Ways in which this Fellowship aims to fulhll a need for which no other organization definitely provides, are by arousing a more vital interest in Bible study, deepening our devotional lives, awakening us to crying needs of the world today, giving us -help in training for Christian service, and developing our appreciation of and loyalty to the Mennonite Church. Although organized late in the school year, our monthly meetings were an indication that the aims of the Fellowship will he accomplished. . V121 TI-IEOSEBIAN FELLOWSHIP The Theosebian Fellowship, sponsored by Bro. I. R. Mumaw, is a new organization for upper classmen in the college Bible Department. "The object of this organization shall be to provide opportunity for devotional study of the Bible, to stimulate the private devotional life of its membersg to develop integrated personalities, to provide vocational guidanceg to direct members in the making of adjustments for church workg and to ac- quaint them with the doctrines, organization, activities, problems of the Mennonite Church." Should its infancy be any indication of its future usefulness, it is safe to predict that each monthly meeting will make a valuable contribution to the Christian lives of its members. SCRIBLERUS Once a month a group of enthusiasts who enjoy creative writing meet to share ideas and compositions. Members of Scriblerus know the satisfaction that comes from express- ing in words their thoughts and emotions. In spite of the fact that this informal society has no rules, no assignments, and no planned programs, there has never been a lack of interesting and varied original material. Short stories, familiar essays, poetry, and verse have been produced, read, and critcized freely by members of the organization. Church papers, as well as school publications, have welcomed contributions from these amateur writers. On March 1, 1945, Scriblerus celebrated its fifth birthday anniversary. l73l I r Athletic Association ORGANIZATION PRESIDENT ' JOSEPH BAER SECRETARY EMILY BRUNK TREASURER EVELYN LANDIS CUSTODIAN HAROLD HOUSEMAN As in all other activities at Eastern Mennonite School, so- in sports a thoroughly Chris- tian spirit is the goal. As a means to attainment of this goal a predominent emphasis on sports as mere competitive entertainment has been avoided, but rather an emphasis that stresses recreation, health, and noble character has been fostered. In harmony with this emphasis a wealth of recreational 'opportunities has been pro- vided for all. Highlights of the past year mark a zenith of Christian play and fellow- ship that will not soon be forgotteng--the feverishly exciting Armerian-"Phillyl' basket- ball games out of which the Phillies invariably managed to squeeze victory-the Armerian -Philly baseball games out of which the Armerians climbed triumphant-the enthusias- tic girls' volley-ball games-the hard-fought tennis and table tennis tournaments-the cool, breezy climbs up Massanutten-the nights in the mountains with God's heaven for a roof. These and a score of other recreational opportunities have meant abundantly more than mere competitive participation and selfish pleasure. They have meant higher ideals healthier bodies, keener intellects, Holy Temples better fitted for God's purpose. l75l SENIOR IOURNAL STAFF EDITOR-1N-c:Hl1axv PAUL P1-:ACH12Y Assocxmric Emroks Gl.Al3W'S Sl-IANK JOHN Mn.1.1aR BUslN1css MAN,xm-:R ROHRER ESI-ILENIAN PIAIOTOGRAPIHICRS HENRY XfV1cAvIcR, JR.

Not all can be mentioned here who have played an important part in this work. Special mention however goes to the photographers who worked under the particular handicap of material shortages. Bro. M. T. Brackbill has given us invaluable service in taking practically all our formal group pictures. Henry Weaver Ir. spent long hours not only in photographing but also in developing and printing many informal pictures of his own taking as Well as those by our other photographer, Kenneth Leasa, and interested friends. I would like to do some more enumerating, but space forbids. To the associate editors, the remainder of the staff, and the salesmen, congratulations and best wishes. Your highest reward lies in the satisfaction of knowing your work was well done, being motivated, I hope, by the spirit of our class mottoes. Above all, may our lives glorify God for the blessings that have again been ours through this year. Sincerely, Paul Peachey. l 76 l ' College Class P1'esident's Address I. Lester Eshleman This is just commencement eve. Feverishly we may have awaited its arrival, it is here now-Qbut it will soon pass in the stream of history. What then is the meaning of com- mencement? Have we not duelled our wits, stceled our minds, and crossed the currents of person- ality, during these years of training? What then are we beginning anew? Indeed school life 'has had its currents and waves but the school of life may prove to be a tempest. Some of our experiences here have made an acid test of our judgment, our patience, and charity too, yet beyond us lie experiences which will well-nigh consume all the resources of mature manhood and womanhood. Youth braves the turbulence of lifeg manhood learns to face it resolutely, and age is disquieted at the recollection of it. Youth at the vista of the fu- ture--shall we know reality too? We shall. The future Ah-but for the strength of our Master! Commencement therefore means life in reality, life unveiled. 'Nhat is said here this evening will soon be forgotten 'but what we think here must ever reverberate in our memories. It is here that we, with hearts joined in appreciation ponder on the future. We yearn to be the Christians we see silhouetted on the horizon before us. With aspiring vision we embark on the future. This aspiration vitalized by the power of the Holy Spirit can innervate us till we meet as a class at Eternityis Com- mencement Day! Such a Dynamic will equip us with the zeal of youth, the resolution of manhood, and the carefulness which characterized old age. ln this hour of emotion, appreciation, dreams both restrospective and prospective, it is easy to eulogize you-Alma Mater, Faculty and Parents. You three have endeared yourselves to us, we thank you and we praise God for you and you receive this tribute graciously but yet waiting-waiting for what? You linger hesitatingly yet prayerfully and hopefully that this tribute might ever be as it is tonight. These words of applause would be but cankers if we fail to praise you beyond the rbenedictionL of this ceremony. Five graduating classes have dauntlessly entered this blood-spattered arena of war but a greater moment may lie ahead. Catastrophic history of war demands emergency strength but will we yet have the endurance for the so called "uneventful yearsu to fol- low? When we feel that rugged testing is past we are likely to relax but such unguarded repose may be the greatest crisis of our lives. Our church has widened and strengthened its pales in time of persecution but too often it has permitted these same pales to recede in prosperity and peace time. Though war and peace should cycle a dozen times in our lifetime, the doctrinal barricade of our church must ever remain intact and her evan- gelical witness must be in the offensive. When half of life is marked we must still be impelled by the Dynamic oi the Cross that is living within us tonight. These are the "post war plans" for our class. We have but one mission in the world. Not to be famous, not to be eminent, not to he imperial, but to be Christian! This is the charge that validates our commission. "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of hosts." QZech. 4:6j ln this power we pledge ourselves to live To the Praise of His Glory. l77l College Class Oration STREAMS OF GLORY Paul Peachey It was the otherwise illafated De Soto who was to be the first white man to behold the Mississippi, that great "Father of Waters". Though this was not the object of his search, his gold-hardened heart must have been stirred as he gazed on that majestic current flow- ing eternally southward. But De Soto was unable to see the one hundred thousand tributaries which were adding their small volumes to that tiny stream issuing from a pond hundreds of miles to the north, to make the mighty flood he now saw. Tonight our hearts are stirred. Though these emotions have been felt by many who have gone before, they are new to us. We are alive, but moreg we are facing life yet to be lived. With enthusiasm we wait to see what lies beyond the horizon of our present ex- perience. But a yet deeper passion is throbbing in our breasts. We are Christians. We stand on the brink of time gazing into the stream of a mighty rushing eternity and the great God which it contains. We possess a somewhat vague and inarticulate vision of the great eternal purpose underlying the marvellously synchronized universe of which we are a part. The voice of God declares to our hearts by the Word and the Spirit that we have been created to the glory of God. We are fascinated and challenged as we stretch our imagination to grapple with the immensity of such a concept. Our Hniteness trembles in the presence of Godis infinity. When we speak of the glory of God we naturally think of heaven, of eternity. We think of the wonders of omnipotence or omnipresence. We think of the glory that must encircle that eternal throne of light. But even as De Soto was unable to see the thousands of streams flowing into the Mississippi, we are unaware of the countless tributaries which make up that vast stream of the glory of God. You and I are tributaries. The glory which our existence contributes is not our own. God made us that there might be creatures to gush forth in praise to Him. But sin entered to dam up each small human stream of praise. Man has tried to turn his re- Hection of divine glory into himself and, instead of a fresh flowing brook, has become a stagnant pool. He has been cut off from the absolute and is Houndering in the morasses of the relative, in the self-made mire of his own corruption. lt has 'become a commonplace to talk about the war and the suffering it brings upon the race. Truly it is terrible. But as Christians we cannot stop to dote on the shifting political fortunes or social upheavals of time. If they are spectacular it is because they stand out in bold relief against the eternal value of the human soul and its Creator. If something has gone wrong in our relationships of time, it is because our roots in eternity have become diseased. It is the coming of Christ that has made possible a regeneration of this bewildered state of man. He has dredged the pools and swamps of human corruption that the glory of our existence may once more How into the stream of God's eternal purpose. In Him, God for the second time places before the race the -power and challenge to live to the praise of His glory. We stretch our hands heavenward. We pledge our lives to the God of our salvation. We are deeply moved as we make such a committal. But we dare not lose sight of the detail as we behold the grandeur of the whole. Only when every thought and motive, every word and deed, every aim and accomplishment is brought into the obedience of Christ will we be living "to the praise of His glory? f73l College Class Poem TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY Verna Mae Brandt Eternal Father, may our lives sing To the praise of His glory. May each note ring Exultingly, May our songs he of Him Who lived, and died, and lives again, To praise His name eternally. Gracious Saviour, may our hearts beat To the praise of Thy glory. Set them afire Until they be AHame with love for Thee. May Thy love burn Within us Until our very souls are stirred To take Thy Word to others. Our Great Creator, may our work be To the praise of Thy glory. May each task done Exalt Thy Name! Let all our earthly store Be laid upon the altar To he used of Thee, To praise Thy name forevermore. Most Holy God, help us yield all To the praise of His glory. Time, talent, home, Friends-everything,- That We may bring to Him Lives emptied, ready to be Hlled, used An everlasting praise to Him! i79l High School Class Presideiitis Address APPRECIATION Daniel Baer Friends, Classmates-Many of the cherished hopes and dreams that we as a class entertained when we entered high-school a short four years ago are now realized. To- morrow we graduate. Despite the fact that during these four years more nations of the world have been drawn into the maelstrom of war than ever before in history, it has been our privilege to continue our education here in a Christian school which is concerned that we receive adequate preparation for life. To God we owe thanks for this institution and the ideals for which it stands, for the privilege of having had Christian teachers, and for the invigorating fellowship with students of like faith. Only through His kindness have we enjoyed such opportunities. Dear parents, as we slowly realize all that you have done for us our deep gratitude can only be expressed in return by deeds of like devotion. It 'has been directly through your love, manifested by hard work and self-denials, that this long anticipated occasion has arrived. From your mature experience we have received invaluable Christian train- ing. It was your word of advice here or counsel there that have proved indispensable to our character building. Dear Faculty-Our thoughts are filled with pleasant memories as we recall our profitable experiences together in and out of the class room. Your noble, patient, self- sacrificing, Christ-like lives steadily exerting an influence for truth and intelligent con- servatism have made their permanent impression upon us. We trust that your work shall not have been in vain. The Board of Trustees, making possible this school by their liberal expenditures of time and effort, must also share our appreciation. It is our prayer you may never lose the vision of the founding fathers in the perpetuation of this institution. Brother Brackbill-Your participation in the activities of our class 'has contributed much toward its success. Your spontaneous enthusiasm, love of order, zest for living and rich Christian experience has stimulated us to aspire for the best in life. We desire that your light of testimony may burn ever brighter for His glory. Dear Classmates-We owe much to our parents, the faculty, and the board of trustees. With their assistance we have forged Christian convictions that are an important part of our preparation for the duties of life. Moreover we have a responsibility to share with others our priceless heritage that they too may discover the abundant life in our Lord Iesus Christ. As we persistently pursue the path leading to our goals many obstacles and hardships will be encountered. Each of us will have his share of heartaches and bitter disappoint- ments. We are in a world which is stained with the deepest dyes of sin. The devil seems to have control everywhere. Men are lighting and killing each other. The world is seething with unrest and people on every hand are looking for a vague something, a panacea which will be a solution to all their problems. Our paths will dip down into valleys of temptation where the devil with all his diabolical cunningness will seek to lure us imperceptibly to destructiong but as youth living for Christ we need not be dismayed. We must continually make our decisions for Christ, and live our lives in participation with Him. We rnust strive for that goal with a dauntlessness, vigor, and strength of will which cannot be broken. The church of the future will be built on our generation. What we are will largely determine what it will be and that depends upon our keeping in the center of His. will. lt is a challenge to each of us as eager youth living for Christ and the Church to always keep our motto in mind, "Thy Will Not Mine." i301 High School Class Oration OUR CHALLENGING HERITAGE Iohn Miller Two million American youth this spring will face the world in a reality that they before could only dream of. And what a world they have to face !-a world of hate that finds release only in blood and destruction-a world of immorality that not even darkest heathendom knows-a world of such chaos as to make the confusion of Babel a simple tale. This is the world American youth must face-face with an education that has its emphasis on a merry-go-round of sports, dances, and movies-face with a heritage of smoking mothers and drunken fathers-face with a philosophy that thrives on hate and accepts murder-face with a perverted concept of life and its seriousness and a puerile knowledge of God that goes no further than the curses that foul their souls. This is the new generation. This is the generation that is to mould the future and erect the lasting peace! It is not with pride but with an overpowering sensation of the sternest responsibility that we, the senior class of nineteen forty-four and forty-live realize that of the two million American youth graduating this spring we are most privileged. Not because we face a less cruel, less sin-scarred world than the other two million youth but because we are products of a heritage that few of these two million American youth know of. Our heritage has brought to us little of drunken fathers, broken homes, and de- generate morals: only clean. strong, redblood-cd bodies: only highest morals: only bind- ing parental unity. Our heritage holds little of modern educational frivolitiesg only zealous, consecrated instructors: only sound Christian instruction. Our heritage sprang not from hate and bloodshed. but from love. Our heritage knows little of the futility of atheism: only a sustaining confidence in God. As we survey this heritage, a :staggering thought wells up within us: We, recipients of the worldas greatest heritage, are therefore the earth's 1'11OSt responsible people. How can we bear the brunt of a responsibility of such awesome proportion? It is with mixed emotions but in one strong confidence that we lift our hearts, our hands, our intelligence, our talents, and our staggering responsibility to God-the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Iacob: the God who delivered Israel out of bondage: the God who sustained Daniel victor of lions: the God of Paul, Iames, and Iohng the God of Conrad Grebel, Menno Simons, and Daniel Kauffman: the God of eternity who creat- ed heaven and earth and all -that is. On this omnipotent, everlasting God who bore the burdens of the ages we lay our all, and each in a passionate note of unfaltering trust prays "Thy Will, Not Mine". l81I 6 High School Class Poem THY WILL, NOT MINE loyce Taylor Dear Lord, rough and thorny was thy path, A path is mine. I stumble-lift me up. I weaken-strengthen mc. I fall-support me on thy arm. But Lord, above all I pray Thy will-not mine. Dear Lord, in the garden thou didst pray, A prayer is mine.

I tremble-increase my faith. I suffer pain-heal me. But Lord, may still I say Thy will-not mine. Dear Lord, a heavenly throne is given to thee, A crown is mine. I surrender-thou receivest.
